The Singers

We are a friendly mixed voice choir, with members from Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire and Norfolk. The choir is named after the anti-slavery campaigner, Thomas Clarkson. Our repertoire is wide ranging and covers both sacred and secular works from madrigals to songs from the shows. Rehearsals are held in the Long Room, at the Octavia Hill House Museum, South Brink, Wisbech on Tuesday evening at 7.00 p.m. - 9.15 p.m.

We continue to welcome new singers of all voices, particularly basses and tenors. The ability to sight-read is welcome but we also welcome non-music readers and inexperienced singers, providing you are able to hold a tune.

The choir is an 'open access choir'; that is, there are no auditions for membership.

Formed originally in 1992, the Clarkson Singers were re-formed in 1995 with the amalgamation of the Wisbech Choral Society and the Wisbech Male Voice Choir.

Director of Music

Loc-Mai Yuen-Brooker was born in Bracknell, Berkshire; studied French and Music at Westminster College, Oxford and later qualified as a Licentiate of the Royal Academy of Music. She then took up a post at the Vierzon Choir and Music School, touring France accompanying and performing. Returning to Berkshire while continuing to teach, she furthered her experience on the concert platform and as a piano recitalist.

Based in Wisbech as a piano tutor, recitalist and accompanist, Loc-Mai has been the pianist for the Clarkson Singers for the past 12 years. She was offered the position of Director of Music by Bruce Wegg in 2012 when he decided to retire from the position due to ill-health, after many years of conducting the choir.

For many years, Loc-Mai has been a singing mentor to students from a variety of different backgrounds, from non-music readers through to those who are musically educated, and whose styles vary from light classical songs from the musicals through to numbers from operas in preparation for concert performances and exams, or purely singing for pleasure.
